Disney’s Aladdin, starring Will Smith, topped the three-day holiday weekend box office at $233 million worldwide. That figure includes $112 million in domestic ticket sales.

Aladdin is the fifth best Memorial Day opening of all time. It is director Guy Ritchie’s best domestic opening ever and Will Smith’s second best behind Suicide Squad ($133.6 million).

Aladdin displaced John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, starring Keanu Reeves, which landed at No. 2 with an estimated $24.35 million for the three-day weekend, according to Box Office Mojo. That total added to John Wick‘s worldwide gross to put the film franchise’s 3rd installment over $800 million.

Aladdin also stars Mena Massoud (pictured with Smith) and Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine.

4-year-old Instagram star Madison Jade offered her opinion on Princess Jasmine’s independence.

The precocious child says “Jasmine needs to go see the world by herself because Aladdin needs to just stay there and Jasmine can just go by herself.”
